Predicting recurrence and progression in individual patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer using EORTC risk tables
Edyta M. Borkowska, Adam Jędrzejczyk, Piotr Marks, James W.F. Catto, Bogdan Kałużewski
We determined the recurrence and progression at 1 year in patients with non-muscle invasive urothelial carcinoma (NMIBC) who underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) and compared those with the calculated risk according to the European Organization of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) in order to examine differences.

Concomitance of oncogenic HPV types, CHEK2 gene mutations and CYPB gene polymorphism as an increased risk factor for malignancy
Monika Banaszkiewicz, Maria Constantinou, Michał Pietrusiński, Łukasz Kępczyński, Adam Jędrzejczyk, Marek Rożniecki, Piotr Marks, Bogdan Kałużewski
Urinary bladder carcinoma ranks the fourth position in malignancy incidence rates in men (6.1%) and the 17th position in women (1.6%). In general, neoplastic diseases, should be approached from two perspectives: prevention with implementation of prophylactic measures and early diagnostics. Prophylactics is possible in the preclinical phase of neoplasm, being both justified and plausible in patients from high-risk groups. Thus, it is particularly important to select such groups, not only by referring to environmental carcinogenic factors (occupational and extra-occupational) but also from genetic predisposition, which may be conductive for neoplasm formation

NSS for a RCC in a patient with renal insufficiency after heart transplant because of right ventricular tumor.
Grzegorz Prokopowicz, Marcin Życzkowski, Krzysztof Nowakowski, Piotr Bryniarski, Andrzej Paradysz
The effect of the immunosuppressive therapy on the development of neoplasms has become the object of an ever increasing interest tor clinicians all over the world. The literature on neoplasms development in the course of therapy following transplants has confirmed a considerable increase in the incidence of neoplasms of the skin and lymph nodes. Organ neoplasms developing in patients after transplants are characterized by increased progression, poor cellular diversification and a more unfavorable prognosis than in the general population The aim of the study is to present the case of a nephron-sparing surgery of a renal tumor (NSS) without any intraoperative ischaemia in a 55-year-old female patient with an orthotopic heart transplant and renal insufficiency following a prolonged immune suppression

Adult Wilms' tumor - diagnosis and current therapy.
Joanna Huszno, Danuta Starzyczny-Słota, Magdalena Jaworska, Elżbieta Nowara
Wilms' tumour is one of the commonest malignant tumours of childhood. It appears mainly in the first 5 years of life. Incidental examples of nephroblastoma in adults have been described in literature (about 3% of all described cases). There are diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties in that older age group. The preoperative diagnosis of nephroblastoma in adults is difficult because there are no specific radiographic findings that allow to distinguished it from the more common adult renal tumors

"Nephroblastoma in adults - case report and treatment strategies"
Joanna Huszno, Danuta Starzyczny-Słota, Magdalena Jaworska, Elżbieta Nowara
Wilms' tumor is the most common type of malignant kidney tumor in children. Due to the fact that this type of cancer is so rare in adults there is a significant lack of treatment strategies in this age group. Treatment is often based on protocols used in children. The present report describes a case of a 25 year old male with nephroblastoma stage IV, who had a primary surgery and chemotherapy according to CDVC (cyclofosfamid, doxorubicyna, vepesid, carboplatin). During the systemic treatment authors observed progression of disease and serious side effects.

Failure to perform surgical repair of varicocele before puberty is among common causes of male infertility. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the testicular volume and fertility potential in men after laparoscopic varicocelectomy conducted in adolescence due to varicocele and concomitant testicular hypotrophy.

The role of oxidative stress and antioxidants in male fertility
Renata Walczak-Jedrzejowska, Jan Karol Wolski, Jolanta Slowikowska-Hilczer
Oxidative stress results from the imbalance between production of the reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the protective effect of the antioxidant system responsible for their neutralization and removal. An excess of ROS causes a pathological reaction resulting in damage to cells and tissues. Spermatozoa are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of ROS. Oxidative stress affects their activity, damages DNA structure, accelerates apoptosis, consequently decreasing their numbers, motility and normal morphology, and impairs function

Should we investigate every patient with haematospermia? A review.
Waseem Akhter, Faisal Khan, Frank Chinegwundoh
Haematospermia or hemospermia is defined as the presence of blood in ejaculate. It often invokes considerable anxiety and is frightening to the patient. Mostly it is due to infectious causes and regarded as benign and self limiting condition particularly in younger patients'. Patients above 0 years and with high risk factors; need thorough evaluation. Detailed examination is mandatory including blood pressure, abdominal palpation for hepatosplenomegaly or renal enlargement. Genital examination is compulsory including the testicles for lumps, urethral discharge as well as rectal examination for prostate assessment.

Mental status in patients with chronic bacterial prostatitis
Oleg Banyra, Olha Ivanenko, Oleg Nikitin, Alexander Shulyak
Chronic prostatitis is a widespread urological disease with a lengthy course and a propensity to frequent recurrences. Adequate response to anti-inflammatory therapy is lacking in a high percentage of patients, which causes them to seek the medical advice of different doctors. Thus the physicians are challenged to look for other reasons causing the pathological symptoms.

A non-cicatrised inflammable reaction occurred at the right-sided insertion of the nephrostomy, which has not been successfully cured, despite intensive dermatological and surgical treatment, including skin grafting

"Central European Journal of Urology" is growing

Dear Friends, Colleagues,
Readers and Editors,

The importance of the "Central European Journal of Urology" is steadily increasing. This is of course,in a large part thanks to you. According to the SCOPUS database ranking of 98 urological journals published and indexed worldwide, our journal is ranked at the 58 th position. This is a very acceptable rank! First place is of course reserved by the "European Urology", but journals ranked near us show that our position is meaningful and the influence of the articles published in our journal is noticeable among the newest trending urological topics. This interesting SCOPUS ranking can be viewed on the following site: https://www.scopus.com/sourceid/19900192570?origin= sbrowse#tabs=1.

Independent of the Web of Science database, the citation index CiteScore prepared by SCOPUS, also contains positive news concerning our journal. In 2016, the CiteScore for the "Central European Journal of Urology" was 0.70. This index rating is calculated based on the amount of citations of articles published in a given journal during the last three years. By following the change in the citation index of the "Central European Journal of Urology", it can be easily seen that the importance of our journal is on the rise. The CiteScore in 2013 was 0.23, and increased to 0.37 and 0.62 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. What is the difference between the CiteScore (SCOPUS) from the Impact Factor (Web of Science)?

Both factors are derived from the amount of citations per published articles. It seems though that the CiteScore is more flexible. It is calculated more often (monthly), not yearly, as is the case for the Impact Factor. The method of calculation and assignment of the CiteScore is clear and available at all times to SCOPUS database users. Please follow how the CiteScore changes this year for the "Central European Journal of Urology"'. This information can be accessed by clicking on the CiteScoreTracker 2017tab. It is now that straight-forward!

By observing the changes occurring in international bibliographic databases, I think that thanks to these tools the SCOPUS database will soon become a very relevant player among the ranking systems and the CiteScore index will be of equal value to that developed by the Web of Science database. Perhaps overtime it will gain even more popularity?


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
